Gardai have said they have received reports of a grey VW Golf with a KE registration acting suspiciously this morning in the Grangegeeth area of Slane.
Gardaí are investigating a report that the occupants attempted to take a jeep from a farmyard in the area.
There are a number of males in this car, which was last seen heading in the Collon direction.
Anyone with information are being asked to contact Gardaí on 999 or 112.

The importance of securing and parking vehicles as close to your premises as possible, ideally out of sight, cannot be overemphasised.
